Artist of the Week: Gabriella Hargrave

I was born in Italy, graduated from university in Milano and have a Postgraduate Certificate in Education from Aberdeen College of Education. Later I received a Diploma in Fine Art from Hertfordshire University. I have worked as a language teacher both in Italy and in the UK.

I make paintings (mainly in oil and acrylics) inspired by poetry (especially that of T.S.Eliot), nature, memory, myths and geometry, but also still life and portraits.

Drawing is a continuous interest and the basics for all I do in art. A more recent interest is also making artists books.
